BOLTING TO A HOBBIT HOLE: PREPARING YOUR HOME FOR THE SAURONS OF TODAY

Recently, we talked about millionaires prepping lavish bunkers for Armageddon. Now, we bring you more news about super rich people: Tech billionaires are building Hobbit holes – er, bolt holes, rather – in New Zealand. Why? That’s what we’d all like to know. Apparently, New Zealand is the place to be during social collapse or nuclear war. The far-off country has the potential to be self-sufficient. It doesn’t have the social tensions that are predominant in Europe and the United States.

NO RAIN IN THE CLOUD: PROTECTING YOUR DIGITAL DOCUMENTS AND KEEPSAKES

I recently got a new computer. I stored the contents of my old computer – years’ worth of work – on a flash drive. That flash drive also contained a backup copy of my new computer’s hard drive and two years’ worth of photos that I’d deleted from my phone to free up phone and cloud storage space. The information on this thing was arguably irreplaceable

PREPARING FOR YOUR SUPER BOWL PARTY IS LIKE PREPPING FOR AN EMERGENCY

Hosting a Super Bowl party this Sunday? There’s lot to prepare for, so if you haven’t started preparing, you’d best get on that! Speaking of preparing (like that segue?), getting ready for emergencies is a lot like hosting a great party. Step One: Planning. First of all, do you even want to host a Super Bowl party? Personally, I’ve never even a Super Bowl before (the travesty!), so I don’t think I’d be too interested in hosting a shin dig for it. However, what if I told you the guests were coming anyway, whether you like it or not? Welp, might as well make the best of things!

WHY PREPARE:

There’s no way to be ready for everything, but Emergency Essentials can get you pretty darn close. Preparing for your survival needs in a disaster can seem daunting, but if you follow a simple plan, you’ll be prepared before you know it.

If an emergency happened to you right this minute, how would you fare?

Think about how much you depend on an ever-present supply of food, water, electricity, and heat, an ability to communicate, a place to lay your head, and an ability to travel.

What if—due to circumstances beyond your control—any one or two of those were lost? What if all of them were lost? What are your chances of survival, based on your current state of preparedness?

While natural or economic disasters pose definite risks, personal emergencies like job loss, divorce, or physical disability due to accident or illness all too often turns the lives of individuals and families upside down, making putting the next meal on the table all the more challenging.

The bottom line is: unfortunate things happen all the time–and you are the first and best defense for helping yourself and your family.

"Do not put off the improbable for the unthinkable. … If there is a one in a million chance of something happening to you then it is happening to 300 people in this country right now." Richard Gist, Kansas City Fire Department

For getting disaster-ready: First, you need an emergency preparedness plan. Here’s an easy Emergency and Evacuation Plan template you can use—just fill in your information and you’re ready to go!

After your plan is in place, you’ll need:

You could compile all of those things, from scratch, on your own. Or you could turn to the disaster preparedness experts, Emergency Essentials. We’re here to help you prepare your family for the unexpected.

While you're working on gathering and storing supplies, visit our official blog for great ideas and to learn some useful skills. Our Emergency Essentials blog and Insight Articles provide top-notch emergency preparedness education. There’s more great information available via our Emergency Essentials Forum and Facebook page to get you exactly what you need.

You may think of “preppers” as people that aren’t like you. But the truth is, most preppers are just everyday people planning ahead for unexpected circumstances with a bit of food storage, water storage, emergency power, and other supplies that will fulfill their basic needs if somehow their supply to their everyday source of supplies (like a grocery store) is unavailable for a while.

Remember, survival isn’t about luck. It’s about prepping for difficult situations ahead of time, including the survival gear, emergency food storage, water storage, and the other supplies and skills you’ll need in a disaster—whether a natural, personal, or financial disaster.
